Hey Chris, nice to catch you briefly today, hopefully next time I won't be in such a rush!

For those who weren't at the ebike last weekend, it was a good amount of fun. All told there were just over a dozen homemade electric bikes present:

Melissa showed up and we roped her into being a judge for the event as well as official photographer. Her posts with comments hare on flicker here:

Some of my favorites:

Ishikawa from Nanaimo with his 4-wheel quad bike, that can be ridden by single rider in the middle or as a sociable tandem.

And we were very fortunate to get a visit from an owner of one of Sam Whittingham's hand-built ebikes from Naked Cycles

Custom built from the ground up to be a longtail with a stokemonkey drive system. Gorgeous indeed.

Looked like a hoot!

Hey Justin I'm now living on Main and 42nd, so I might try to pop in when you're less busy. These long sunny days are killing me without a motorbike :x

See you soon!

Thank you Justin for putting this together. I had a good time that day.
There are seven ES posters visible in the group shot of 13 bikes!
